Crystal Castles "Affection" (2012)

Where They Sound The Same: It's all in those synths. Besides that, JT and CC have very little in common.

Out of all the same-sounding songs in the world, this has to be one of the most surprising. Crystal Castles has made their mark with dark, gothic, blistering electronic music and imagery fit for a cemetery or a horror movie. Justin Timberlake got his start with the Mickey Mouse Club and N*SYNC. But press play on "Affection," and you might start thinking, "Damn, this reminds me of something" before having your mind blown when you realize Crystal Castles and JT have more in common than you thought. The similarities on these two songs might end with the stuttering synths, but that's proof enough that sometimes musical intersections take place in the strangest of places.
